Hello, Im going to attempt a Bacon weaved wrapped 12lb turkey this year for turkey day, I plan on brining in a basic brine.. Jeff's rub in and out of skin. Mesquite and apple wood. Have a Cabelas Vertical propane smoker. My question, do I place turkey, breast side down or up. Rotate often? the question is primarely for the reason, how easy would it be to rotate often with the weave on a bird!! With the Bacon the breast shouldn't burn right? Any other suggestions or help I would gladly take :)
Happy Turkey Day *best forum EVER!!*
